National Weather Service Louisville KY
325 PM EST Tue Dec 18 2018

.Short Term...(This evening through Wednesday)
Issued at 250 PM EST Tue Dec 18 2018

Sfc high pressure and upper level ridging will move off the east 
tonight resulting in mostly clear skies and dry conditions.  Low 
temps should range through the lower 30s.  

A weak southerly return flow will begin early Wednesday morning. 
This will result in mild conditions for tomorrow with high temps in 
the mid 50s to around 60. Clouds will increase from the southwest 
late in the day ahead of the next weather system.

&&

.Long Term...(Wednesday night through Tuesday)
Issued at 323 PM EST Tue Dec 18 2018

....Complex Storm System to Affect Our Area Thu and Fri... 

Wednesday Night...

A deep SW flow regime will be in place over much of the eastern 
CONUS ahead of an amplified central CONUS trough. Expect increasing 
cloud cover with light rain chances gradually overspreading the 
region on an isentropic lift component evident on 290-300 K theta 
surfaces. Everyone won't see rain Wednesday night, but chances will 
be steadily increasing. Temps will bottom out in the low to mid 40s.

Thursday - Friday...

Strong and deep low pressure will ride up the Appalachian spine into 
the eastern Great Lakes through the end of the work week. As this 
occurs, deeper moisture should wrap into the system both from the 
Gulf and Atlantic. We'll see periods of light to moderate rain, with 
a few pockets of heavier rain also possible. Will continue with high 
pops during this time frame with overall QPF ranging from 0.5 to 
1.5". The highest amounts should fall over the eastern CWA near the 
I-75 corridor. 

Although we do expect mostly rain, just enough cold air may be 
introduced on Friday to see a rain/snow mix of brief change to snow. 
Even in that scenario, surface temps will stay above freezing, so 
any snow will be falling on an already wet and above freezing 
surface so doubt any accums would materialize. In addition, the 
deepest moisture is pulling out of the area by the time the colder 
air arrives so any change in p-type should be mostly light in nature 
by that time. Overall, this system has trended east and weaker from 
previous runs.

With the weaker expected system, expected wind NNW winds gusts on 
Friday also aren't as impressive as they were. It will still be 
gusty, but most gusts appear to be more in the 25-35 mph range as 
steep low level lapse rates reach up into a ~30 knot layer of winds.

After highs around 50 on Thursday, expect pretty a pretty small 
diurnal range between Thursday night and Friday. After lows fall 
into the upper 30s to around 40 on Thursday night, only expect highs 
to bump a couple/few degrees on Friday as a strong cold advection 
component combines with heavy cloud cover and plenty of 
precipitation. Temps aren't going to go anywhere in that scenario. 
So, only calling for highs in the low 40s on Friday, and that might 
be generous.

Friday Night - Saturday Night...

The upper trough axis quickly lifts out of the region Friday night, 
with precipitation chances ending from W to E as the deeper moisture 
and deformation band lift out of the area. The colder air finally 
does get in here by Saturday morning, with temps in the upper 20s by 
dawn.

Surface high pressure and benign zonal flow aloft control Saturday 
and Saturday night, keeping us dry with temps near normal.

Sunday - Christmas Day...

Confidence lowers overall to end the weekend and go into Christmas 
as models diverge on a couple of weaker disturbances passing through 
the zonal flow aloft. Will likely keep some small chances in during 
this time, but it's hard to be too specific or confident given the 
spread in solutions. At the very least it looks like precipitation, 
if any, would be mostly liquid. Although, there could be a brief 
overunning mix on Christmas morning if the ECMWF/Canadian are to be 
believed. Overall, chances for a white (accumulating snow) Christmas 
seem low to nil at this point. Temps may even be slightly above 
normal during the daylight hours for the first part of the week.

&&

.Aviation...(18Z TAF Issuance)
Updated at 1215 PM EST Tue Dec 18 2018

VFR conditions are expected this TAF period with sfc high pressure 
and upper level ridging moving through the region.  Light/vrb or 
easterly winds today will become southerly 5-7 kts tomorrow.
